New flexible rail tickets are on sale now, matching modern working habits and saving passengers hundreds of pounds.
James Duddridge MP is encouraging local commuters to use the updated online ‘season ticket calculator’ to help them find the best tickets for them.
The paperless tickets will allow travel on any 8 days in a 28-day period, with passengers able to tap smartcards or scan mobiles at the station with no need to select the days of travel in advance.
The change has the potential to save commuters hundreds of pounds, providing greater choice and flexibility.
Commenting, James said:
"The new Flexi Season ticket will give commuters across Southend and Rochford greater freedom and choice to divide their time between home and the office. It is a fantastic initiative and has the potential to save rail users hundreds of pounds. I would recommend those who commute to use the online season ticket calculator to find the option that works best for you."
